Our friends at TagJungle have launched a working blog search website at TagJungle.com. I like the implementation a lot. Phil Burns blogged last month about the leadup to the launch. It's nice to see a Web 2.0 company launch in Utah with a very different approach to searching the blogosphere than anyone else. I like the TagJungle Alexa chart, which is showing about 18,000 for today.
My most popular post in the past six months was the one last week about getting a $200 in pay-per-click advertising credit from MSN.com if you sign up for a new account (which costs $5.) I had record traffic numbers for three days. So, being the fast learner that I am, I figure that I should give my readers more of what they want. So I'll keep looking for money-saving offers and credits from online advertisers who want more business.
I'm attending my first panel at SES Chicago. I chose to attend the session called Bulk Submit 2.0. The presenters include Amanda Camp, the Google engineer over Sitemaps, and Amit Kumar, the Yahoo manager over Site Explorer, along with two agency search marketers. Everyone is enthusiastic about the industry's acceptance of a bulk site submit protocoal at www.sitemaps.org. I will try to boil down all the advice from this session and others into future blog posts.
